mckeehancan, steve willis, and conway labloom. they were heroes. when i hear taps or when i hear the bagpipes, i just break down. i'll take this to my grave. protests in ukraine. we are live there.
2:01am
>> it is tuesday, december 3rd and 5:00 in the east. >> a stunning revelation in the derailment of that new york city commuter train that left four passengers killed and dozens more injured. they say the metro north train was going 82 miles an hour! >> wow. >> into a sharp curve that had a 30 miles an hour speed limit. that, folks s a bad combination. but it is still too soon, they say, to determine who or what is to blame here. a lot of questions. cnn's renee marsh is following developments for us. >> reporter: john and zoraida, we know this morning how fast that commuter train was going but still don't know why. the report shows that the train was traveling at approximately 82 miles an hour as it went into a 30-mile-an-hour curve. that is too fast for an approach that had a speed limit of 70 and way too fast for the curve's 30 miles per hour limit. deepening the mystery, the ntsb
2:02am
says in two minutes, the train insplikly went 82 before jumping the track. mechanical problem or human error is too early to tell. rockefeller, 20-year veteran of the record, why was the train going so fast? we know investigators say he tried to brake but the train didn't stop according to a law enforcement official. the ntsb, they will look at whether fatigue was a factor. >> we don't have the work history at the moment. we will be developing what we call a 72-hour time line so that we have a good understanding of what sort of activities preceded this accident. >> reporter: rockefeller appeared ko herein another official said, but drug and alcohol tests were conducted. the ntsb says there's no
2:03am
indication at this particular time of sabotage, but they are reviewing surveillance video from a nearby bridge. upon word speed played a role in the crash, new york governor cuomo said any responsible parties will be held accountable. john, zoraida? >> thank you, renee. obama care website has had its first major test in relaunching on sunday and it got close to the 100,000 users it's supposed to handle on a daily basis. people in some states were met with a page that put them in line to get help a problem cleared up overnight. overall the site shows progress but has doubts it can enroll the number of it needs to by the end of march. president obama will refocus people on the benefits of obama care and the white house will emphasize one benefit of the law each day until december 23rd, that is the deadline to sign up for coverage in january. vice president joe biden is in japan this morning, the first
2:04am
stop on a week-long asia trip that includes visits to china and south korea. the vice president had planned to focus on trade and economic issues but suddenly he is finding himself to calm rising tensions in the region over the east china sea claimed by china and japan. the dispute intensified last week with china's claim of an airplane defense identification zone over these islands. accusations this morning against syrian president bashar. the human rights chief says massive evidence collected over the course of the 33-month-old conflict in syria indicates asawed sad in war crimes and crimes against humanity. cnn's frederik pleitgen is following this for us and live in damascus. does this report name bashar al assad specifically? >> reporter: it doesn't name him
2:05am
specifically but does implicate him. the report says that these war crimes and crimes against humanity go all the way to the top levels of the syrian government, including responsibility for the office of the head of state and that is bashar al assad and a strong statement the united nations is making. the deputy foreign minister came out and said they give no credibility to this report whatsoever. they said, quote, pela who is the u.n. human rights chief has talked to, quote, nonsense in the past and they are sort of trying to brush this off but it is something will carry a lot of weight internationally. the united states nations head of human rights wants to take syria to the international criminal court and that would be something that would up the ante considerably, zoraida.
2:06am

2:31am
>> that is correct. >> reporter: what does that tell you? anything at all? >> at this point in time, i can't really say. >> they are not sure exactly what caused the train to speed up. was it the operator or was it a malfunction? crews have now removed the train cars from the track as this investigation intensifies. authorities question the locomotive engineer william rockefeller, jr. who was among those injured. they are in possession of his phone and waiting on drug and alcohol tests as well. four passengers died in this accident. more than 60 others were injured. let's not forget the victims. they are 54-year-old donna smith. 59-year-old james ferrari and 35-year-old ann kis on ock and jim loafll, who is 58. cnn spoke exclusively with the lovell family. >> my dad was not a victim. i don't want him to be known as a victim. jim lovell was so much more than just a victim.
